The real secret to making money online is to fix problems for people, if you can fix a specific problem and be persuasive, people will be begging you to take their money, but to reach this level you need to first learn how to create great content that provides value for your readers, and you also need to be an authority in your specific area, so people can trust you.

This phase usually takes 1-2 years, depending on how much effort you put in. This is where most people give up, simple because they don’t know how to turn their blog into a money making machine.

  • Get Traffic

Once you create great content and are consistent, people will find you and they will start to recommend your website, next thing you know, you are getting thousands of visitors a day.
